A FFA family tradition continues in Western Illinois. Two brothers and now a cousin will serve as a section president. Mercer County High School junior Adam Lloyd will be sworn in as Section 4 president in June. His two cousins Jason and Clay Zwilling were also section FFA presidents.
Clay Zwilling went on to become Illinois FFA president and current Illinois FFA treasurer Tyson Schulte is from section 4. Lloyd says he also has ambitions for a statewide office.
Section 4 is comprised of 12 FFA Chapters in Rock Island, Mercer, Warren, Henderson, Fulton and Knox counties.
